NOI/SWPPP for Development Sites One Acre or Greater
Construction Activity is the disturbance of one acre or more of total land area and less than one acre of total land area that is part of a common plan of development or sale. Prior to land disturbance associated with construction activity, a permit application must be submitted in the form of a Notice of Intent (NOI) to the City of Lincoln for authorization, and to the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) for approval. The NOI must include a Construction Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) with the information identified in Section 28.01.060 of the Lincoln Municipal Code and the Drainage Criteria Manual (DCM). The SWPPP must identify Best Management Practices (BMPs) to be implemented to control erosion, sedimentation, and pollutants. Chapter 9 of the City's DCM describes requirements for SWPPPs and provides specifications for a range of BMPs.
The Construction Activity SWPPP must be prepared and signed by a qualified individual such as a Professional Engineer, Landscape Architect, and/or Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC). If review comments are not received by the permittee within 7 business days after receipt of application by the City, the application shall be deemed authorized. Once the construction is complete in accordance with the design standards, the applicant shall submit a Notice of Termination to the City and NDEQ.
The building phase of development for a common plan of development or sale may be covered under one SWPPP that is submitted by and under the control of the permittee.
